UNSOLVED Constant Save Icon0 Likes/6 Replies/209 ViewsOriginal poster sjohan1 1 posts
I started playing AC Valhalla but have come across an issue. The save icon is constantly showing on and off the screen. Every time it does the game stops, I am able to swivel around the character with my mouse but there is no movement until the save icon goes away but it doesnt. I then tried AC Odyssey and its doing the exact same thing. Any help would be great.

Welcome to the discussions!
I'm sorry to hear that your game stops for a while autosaving.
Can you please provide us with your full PC specs, so we can have a look? Secondly, can you please perform all of the troubleshooting steps listed in this article? This will help you to eliminate any potential software conflicts.
Many thanks and if you have any additional questions, please let us know.

Did you open the Connect overlay before that happened? Because that's how the latest three AC games act when I do it.
Sidenote, I deactivated the overlay to prevent myself from opening it accidentally, only to find out this denies access to certain bonus quests.

Could you tell me more about this please?
I never play with overlays on in any game launcher because it's stated so many times (in different threads, performance guides etc) that overlays can affect game performance sometimes quite negatively.
What type of quests? Are they big quests or just small ones similar to (blue icon) Mystery Quests?
How many quests at a guess would be missing?

@sjohan1 i suggest you this: go in "search" tab near "start" - type "msconfig" - "General" - in selective startup untick "Load startup items" - "Apply". Then go to "Services" tick "Hide all Microsoft services" - Apply - "Disable all" - Apply - OK - than will prompt to restart the pc. This will disable any service or start up item not needed that can mess with ac valhalla. This solved my autosave crashes, so maybe it will solve this issue too.
